Damn that sucks man.. you gotta really be careful who you order from.. But they might be busy? you never know.. But just keep trying to contact them..

How long as it been? since his site says
Conner's Carnivores- Ordering and Shipping wrote:Plants are shipped via USPS Priority mail and usually will usually arrive within 2-3 days. A $5.00 handling fee is included with the shipping cost.

Ah i see..since it's not been over a "week" I'm guessing it's probably a problem with the postal service.. but i could be wrong. If it doesn't come within a new more days that it's a problem a big! problem! Either he didn't send it or its lost in the mail somewhere. But if you plants are "damage" or are "shocked" when they come in I'd contact him to replace those plants if he has a return policy..

Yeah i know what you mean. Sometimes the postal service makes a lot of mistakes in shipping but rarely. If you want I can try to contact him for you.

Even if it shipped out Saturday it may not have started traveling until Monday, depending on how late on Sat he shipped it, since there is no mail on Sunday.

David is a good guy and I've placed a couple orders with him and never had any problems. If you email him, he'll almost certainly get back to you within a day or so. I'm certain you didn't get scammed. Just email him and have a little patience until he gets back to you.

I'd guess it's just a delay in the mail. Priority usually does get there quickly, but things can happen to delay it, especially if it's shipping all the way across the country (as in your case).

I understand totally. It's worrisome when you order something online and you're expecting it and it doesn't come, especially if you don't get a response from the retailer. I'm guessing either David is very busy or away from his computer for some reason and the package got delayed. I expect that you'll either hear from him or get the package soon.

Im such a bonehead. I totally forgot that David said that he was going to be away for a couple of days without e-mail. He just got back to me now and said that if i don't get them this week, he will either send me some new ones or give me a full refund.

I don't want to give David Conner a bad reputation because i know its NOT his fault. Its USPS's fault
